Events for September 10-16

Stay the course. We’re eeking closer to those magical four-ish weeks of fall we get here in NYC. Until then, check out what’s on tap this week – we’ve got the monthly NYTM, a hackathon, and an all-day affair for devs and entrepreneurs interested in the music space.


September 10: Basics of Mobil App Development for Non-Programmers, 7-8:30PM


Get going on that app idea you’ve got tucked away for someday. The promise here is big: in 90 minutes you’ll learn how to turn your idea into an app using the Phonegap. iPhones and Androids alike are welcome. FREE, Hosted by the CodEd. Register yourself, here.

Location: Alley NYC 500 7th Ave, 17th Floor


September 11: NYTM, 7-9PM


Only four of these left in 2012. Tickets, as always, are short on supply, but there’s always the waitlist at the door – which is generally a good bet. See who else is going, and search for last minute tickets, here.

Location: NYU Skirball Center, 566 Laguardia Place


September 14: The Music Startup Academy, 9AM – 5PM


One for all of you DJ-slash-coder-slash-idea-guy types. The Music Startup Academy schedule includes panels on the basics on music economics, content acquisition, and music-related tech specs. Bonus: Spotify and The Orchard will be presenting their APIs for use. All day tickets, $149 here.

Location: General Assembly, 902 Broadway, 4th Floor

September 14-16: Lean Startup Machine, 6PM Fri. – 6:00PM Sun.
